ASM Clermont – Section Paloise: the keys to a race with a huge handicap

At the end of the meeting, the Béarnais of Clermont Yohan Beheregaray saluted the defensive organization of his team. And for good reason, the Auvergnats built a wall and then weaved a web around their flocks from Pau. As a result, the Section had to wait a quarter of an hour to play the first drinkable ball, while Belleau was already checking the foot (6-0, 9th) … When he finally managed to remove the hold thanks to Laporte then Le Bail, the yellow and blue curtain immediately changed (28th).

Before the break, Falgoux preferred to wear…

At the end of the meeting, the Béarnais of Clermont Yohan Beheregaray saluted the defensive organization of his team. And for good reason, the Auvergnats built a wall and then weaved a web around their flocks from Pau. As a result, the Section had to wait a quarter of an hour to play the first drinkable ball, while Belleau was already checking the foot (6-0, 9th) … When he finally managed to remove the hold thanks to Laporte then Le Bail, the yellow and blue curtain immediately changed (28th).

Before the break, Falgoux preferred to make a mistake and get a yellow rather than let Joseph get through the attempt, giving Henry 3 points instead of 7 (16-9, 40th). Through the stumbling of the defense line of the band of Jono Gibbes, the error of many estimates and the slowness of their supporters, Palois was punished four times for balls hidden on the ground. Including three worth 17 points…

The change in the 44th

In a recovery ball, ASM tries to spread his 22 meters. Penaud took the lead (44th). Pau mee is allowed. But Bearn’s alignment disturbed his counterpart in the penalty touch. The potato was hot and the rugby hooray pass followed one another to Colombet’s wing. The winger did what he could but found himself alone and locked on the ground.

Mr. Gasnier raised his arm to allow him. Belleau found a penalty touch 10 meters from the Béarnaise line. The big ones from Auvergne alternate between speed and power. Iturria ended up finding the fault on the edge of the ruck, with a charge painted with finesse (23-9, 49th). A bamboo shot, while Section is in a good position to score.

Wrong penalties

Beaten on the ground, like against Perpignan, Pau remained different with its ugly victory won last weekend (16-14). If Captain Whitelock’s men steal or “foul” five opposing hits, they lose three penalty hits, two of which are of high importance. However, by mastering the bullets well in the air they allowed Henry to pick up before the break (16-9, 40th). On the other hand, the stray ball in the 43rd minute triggered the turn in the 44th and the break test for Clermontois. In the end, one last missed shot took away all hope of a crazy comeback (78th).

Passion and will

Béarnais will want to put more motivation into their game after a lackluster performance against USAP. But a successful bet. If their scrum gave them the first three points (6-3, 16th), it was their ability to mount a good game under pressure combined with an aggressive defense that gave them the equalizer (6- 6, 19th). Although Raka, served twice at the end of the wing with a wonderful one-step pass that followed well-prepared mauls, scored (16-6, 35th), Section Paloise did not demobilize.

In addition, after the “bamboo shot” achieved by Iturria, very good this Saturday night and after the contract in June 2023 (we said that …), he raised his head. A good attack was rewarded with a penalty, a well-timed maul and Delhommel went flat in a corner (23-14, 52′). Then, the Béarn pack won the showdown and Henry rewarded him (23-17, 62nd).

A test for nothing

The problem is, while the momentum is clearly Pois, the Section is shooting itself in the foot. After the dismissal, Capelli charged limply and was caught on the ground. Plisson returned the visitors to 9 points (26-17, 63rd). They were cornered in their camp but resisted strongly.

When Hewat escaped and sent Daubagna, they thought they could rob the Michelin stadium. But the scrum half is very lonely. The Auvergnats put their hands on the ball in the ruck, Penaud grabbed it, pushed it with the foot, dribbled a little then actually removed Béarnais (33-17, 76th).

Proudly, however, they would score a final try in the far end, chaining well-controlled scrums. ASM was in pain and Mr. Gasnier went between the posts (33-24, 82nd). For nothing…

Laporte, concern

Already destroyed at the back, with the absence of Manu, Decron, Tuimaba, Ikpefan or Pinto, Section Paloise may have some concerns. Clément Laporte, who was excellent at the back, had to leave in the 58th minute after a tackle in which he twisted his knee. If Sébastien Piqueronies said after the match that it was a precaution, the former Lyonnais will undergo further examinations.
